The Trust is currently seeking to have a number of former Trustees removed from the Charity Commission website so that new Trustees can be appointed. They have unfortunately been implicated in supporting attempted fraud of the Trust back in 2014/15. These individuals continue to try and cause problems for the Trust but they represent no one but themselves.
